PHOTOS: Three Congressmen Arrested For ‘Civil Disobedience’ Outside Trump Tower

Three congressman were arrested for “civil disobedience” in front of Trump tower in New York City Tuesday morning.

Arizona Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva, Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez, and New York Democratic Rep. Adriano Espaillat, all were arrested for civil disobedience while protesting outside of one of President Donald Trump’s personal residences.

“I stood in front of Trump Tower today with a whole lot of DREAMers, immigrants and Americans to say enough to Trump and his criminalization of our immigrant communities,” Grijalva posted on his Facebook page.

Minutes later, another post appeared on Grijalva’s Facebook page reading, “Update: Raul was taken into custody in front of Trump Tower for civil disobedience along with Rep. Gutierrez and Rep. Espaillat.”

    Our congress is despicable and embarrassing to us all. President Trump is correct. WE must DRAIN THE SWAMP, starting with the deepest, dankest, ugliest swamp of all: our congress and senate. We are on the edge of making America great again. Thank you President Trump. WE are with you!!!!!

    What is the matter with these people?!! Why are they not doing their jobs at the House of Representatives? Why are they moping around NYC when they just had a whole month vacation in August! GET TO WORK!!! Instead of working, they “protest”! They should be fired! IMMEDIATELY!!! Obama made an ILLEGAL law, and Trump repealed it. If they want to do something, create a law that can be passed in Congress instead of “Protesting” outside the President’s residence! Good Grief! Obama made his own laws! Trump doesn’t do that.

    I don’t feel sorry for them, my brother my sister and I were brought in here the same way we were illegal for 2 years then we were deported to Tijuana punished for 2 years, and then my mother did the right thing and applied for residency which was given to us 2 years later so. QUERER ES PODER. We were still small children. this people have had 20 + years and now they complain and demand…I DON’T THINK SO!!

    I think if a congressman has any type of criminal record even being disobedient in public then they need to loose their congressional seat. Forever Bcuz instead of obeying the law they are disobedient to it what example are they setting here. They really should loose their jobs set an example. They can dream with the dreamers this way. They can dream of how they use to be a congressman. LMAO

    They should be kicked out of office and not be able to run for anything again!
    As for DACA’s all the Democrats want are voters. The DNC are losing democrats every day because the people are fed up with their constant whining and left wing violence and lack of cooperation with the president!
